How are you? ♥
I'm sorry it's been a while since I posted, there's been a lot going on lately, and I haven't had the time to write anything. :( But anyway, here I am now, giving you the apartment post I promised before. I hope you enjoy the tour!
Welcome to our apartment
We live in a rented apartment at the moment, in the 6th floor and just 15-minute bus drive away from the city center. Even though we're looking for a bigger place as we speak, and the furniture isn't exactly what we dream of, we decided to open the door to our little home for you, my amazing readers. :)
Let's start from the kitchen (which serves as a dining room as well).
We don't have a lot in our kitchen, due to the impossibility of attaching anything to the rock hard walls. So everything is a bit more empty (everywhere in our home) than we'd like. I try to compensate with having flowers and colors everywhere. (And if you wonder where the fourth chair from the table is, don't worry. I have it as my sewing chair.)
As you might've noticed already, I love cooking. That shows in our kitchen as a crazy amount of spices, so much so that they don't really fit nicely on the shelf...
If I got to choose, though, our spice rack would look like the picture above.
Some of my favorite spices.
Next up, we're going to see the livingroom. There we have a little office space, a sewing table/corner and the actual livingroom. It's lot to have in a quite small place, but we've found a way to get the most out of our apartment.
I may have an unhealthy relationship with Ikea's boxes, but I really feel they're a great way to store items (such as papers) and decorate the same time.
A shot of our hallway, not much to see there, though.
Cardboard alphabets I've painted - they still miss Super Mario characters, which I'm working on at the moment. ;)
Bookshelf, with the word Love on top of it. We really like these dark Ikea shelves, they have the edge we want to have in our home in the future as well as now.
The corner with the couches. We're dreaming about a different couch, a one with a nice corner and all, but at the moment that's not that well within the budget.
Some details on our livingroom...
Then a peek to our balcony - that has been seen in some outfit pictures already, but what I'm showing you again in one picture as well.
This is something I would love to spruce up a bit, it's cute already with the table and the grill (not seen here, as it was right behind me), but there's a lot I would love to do with the place.
Back inside, here's my sewing table - currently empty of projects, but probably not so much this weekend. ;)
My memory board, where I collect tickets, photos, autographs from places I've been. I should rearrange it during the Autumn.
A vanilla-scented candle. Couldn't live without these! ♥
Our bedroom, to which we were trying to find bedside tables the other day. I'll write a little update post when it's done.
More Ikea boxes, these are the ones where I keep most of my beauty products (I'd love a dresser, but unfortunately one couldn't fit here.)
Cute boxes for my necklaces, bracelets and nail polishes. Love them.
Silly, but I had to take a picture: Our favorite scents on the bedroom table. ♥
My little pride and joy - handmade dreamcatcher.
Last and the least, our bathroom. Despite having a shower, a bathtub and our own laundry machine, the bathroom isn't something to really show to anyone. I also left out our hallway and the walk-in closet(ish), as they wouldn't be too interesting to see.
Anyways, that's our little home. We do love to live here, but we would really love a new place with a little more room and some new furniture. When we do, I'll let you know in a form of update post.
So, what do you think about our humble home? And, I would love to see your homes as well - as whole, or as in details - so I challenge my readers to make a home/apartment post of their own, and link it here. (If you've done one already, just leave the link to that, it's as good!)
I hope you'll all have a lovely rest of the week!
Blog ya later!
